I think I saw someone post about updating instructions for installing this.
Does anyone have a link or instructions?

Supposed you are not developing guest additions :-)

0) In VBox Manager, you should have defined a (virtual) optical drive
for your Guest VM.

1) RTFM ;-) (for Win host here):
"4.2.1.1 Installing the Windows Guest Additions
In the _Devices menu_ in the virtual machine s menu bar, Oracle VM
VirtualBox has a menu item
_Insert Guest Additions_ CD Image, which mounts the Guest Additions
ISO file inside your virtual
machine.* A Windows guest should then automatically start the Guest
Additions installer, which
installs the Guest Additions on your Windows guest.
For other guest operating systems, or if automatic start of software
on a CD is disabled, you
need to do a manual start of the installer."

2) In OS/2, open this (virtual) optical drive represented by the iso,
change to "OS2" folger and follow the Readme instructions. You might
better leave the libc* files untouched if you got their latest ones
yourself by ANPM e.g.

Have fun!

Thanks a lot. One nice thing about a virtual disk is I can install it on a
copy.
